Brett’s iTip: We’ve talked about using the built-in “Text Replacement” setting on iPhones and iPad before, but if you have a word or phrase that you regularly type, and get frustrated with it being corrected all the time, then simply create a “Text Replacement” entry and type in that word or phrase in the “Phrase” field at top, but leave the “Shortcut” field BLANK. The next time you type that word it will not auto-correct. You can get to the Text Replacement section by going to Settings - General - Keyboard. Or wherever you’re typing tap and hold on the globe icon and then tap “Keyboard Settings” from there.
Jeff’s iTip: You can play background soundscapes when you need to focus, relax, or fall asleep. Listen to rain, forest, ocean, white noise, night, fireplace, or stream sounds.Say, for example, “Hey Siri, play Ambient Sounds” or “Hey Siri, play forest sounds.” This also works on iPhones. And when iOS 16.3 gets released we’ve been promised “Remastered ambient sounds are more immersive and can now be added to scenes, automations, and alarms in the Home app.”
